Benn: Conservatives have made progress

Environment Secretary Hilary Benn, sporting a very large rosette, tells Sky News says "one of the stories tonight is the number of people who have come otu and voted".
There has been "some" trouble in Leeds with people trying to vote.
Asked if Labour will lose majority: "On the basis of the exit poll it looks as if Conservatives have made progress." Must work towards a parliament that works.
"I think that it is going to depend entirely on the results. But at the same time I think certainly as far as Labour is concerned if there are others with whom we can work, that is something we should contemplate.
"It's going to depend on the result itself. The things that we have fought this election on... just because the election is over doesn't mean we will stop fighting."
